Ketchikan voters have plenty of decisions to make on Tuesday, but the next borough mayor won’t be one of them.
Incumbent Mayor David Landis is running unopposed for re-election to his seat. All the other races, though, have more candidates than seats to fill.
Five people are running for two seats on the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly. They are Rodney Dial, Keith Smith, Susan Pickrell, Judith McQuerry and David Timmerman.
The two incumbents can’t run for re-election because of term limits.
On the Ketchikan School Board, four people are running for two open seats. The three that will be listed on the ballot are Conan Steele, Kim Hodne and incumbent Trevor Shaw. Kevin Johnson is running as a write-in candidate.
The borough ballot also will include two propositions. One asks for voter approval of a $2 per pack tobacco tax; the second asks voters to extend a half-percent schools capital project sales tax an additional five years.
For Ketchikan City Council, three people are running for two seats. They are incumbents Julie Isom and Judy Zenge, and challenger Spencer Strassburg.
Polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. at seven locations in the borough.
